 Module Name:	src
 Committed By:	plunky

 Modified Files:
 	src/distrib/sets/lists/man: mi
 	src/share/man/man4: Makefile ubt.4
 	src/sys/dev: DEVNAMES
 	src/sys/dev/usb: FILES files.usb ubt.c
 Removed Files:
 	src/share/man/man4: ubtbcmfw.4
 	src/sys/dev/usb: ubtbcmfw.c
 Log Message:
 The ubtbcmfw(4) driver fails to compile, as noted by PR kern/34219.
 While it can be made to compile, the paradigm is not quite right because
 it attempts to contact the filesystem during autoconfig which sometimes
 causes a panic. Even if that was fixed, there is another potential problem
 in that the driver tries/sleeps/tries/sleeps and the sleep could
 theoretically sleep past the rc.d/btconfig stage and the controller
 would remain unconfigured.
 So, I have prepared a different method for loading the firmware to
 Broadcom BCM2033 chip based devices. A package 'sysutils/bcmfw' will load
 the firmware files via a ugen(4) device interface.
 This update removes the ubtbcmfw(4) driver and adds a table to the ubt(4)
 driver so that it will not attach to Broadcom BCM2033 based devices before
 the firmware was loaded.
 This fixes kern/34219
